Top 10 famous pub landlords

Stuart Broad

Cricketers Stuart Broad and Harry Gurney own a pair of pubs – The Three Crowns in Wymeswold and The Tap and Run in Upper Broughton, Leicestershire, as part of their Cat and Wickets Pub Company.

The pair snapped up The Three Crowns in August 2016, and added The Tap and Run to their portfolio last year.

Formerly known as The Golden Fleece, boys have given the gastropub a new lease of life, sourcing ingredients from the surrounding area for their dishes and offering locals beer tokens in exchange for home-grown produce.

“We’re not trying to change the wheel. We know nice country village pubs are what people want,” Cramp said at the time of the launch. “To be expanding now into another Leicestershire village is great and hopefully we’ll have the same reception as we did in Wymeswold,” Broad added.

    The Grapes is the only one on the list that I’ve visited. I like to vacation in London, and on a Monday in June 2017, I arrived, saw a posting on FB from Sir Ian, saying he was personally hosting a pub quiz, and immediately decided to be there. The pub is narrow, and it was packed that night, but the quiz was great fun, and I shook the man’s hand as he left at the end of the evening. Now it’s a must-go place for me every time I visit London.
